Housing Vouchers are provided to people with barriers to acquiring housing whether those are economic, health, or history related. Tenants with subsidies and vouchers are in need of a home, not just a place to live. Typically, tenants with subsidies and vouchers also have HOUSING NAVIGATION and CASE MANAGEMENT support.
Local governments and Colorado’s legislature have passed ordinances and laws that include protections for tenants that apply for housing with rent voucher, among other income types. These rules are often known as source of income protections.
Beginning January 1, 2021, Colorado landlords will be required to comply with a new law that prohibits housing discrimination based on source of income. For more information, see HB20-1332 on the Colorado.gov website.
The City and County of Denver also has a source of income protection as part of its Anti-Discrimination Ordinance. Visit the Human Rights and Community Partnerships page on denvergov.org for more information.
The City of Boulder has a local Human Rights Ordinance that includes source of income protection. Visit the Boulder Human Rights Ordinance page on bouldercolorado.gov for more information.
Brothers Redevelopment is recruiting landlords across the state to rent to residents in transition — those recovering from health problems and leaving rehabilitation. These tenants and Brothers have the backing of one of the state’s strongest safety-net programs, Colorado Choice Transitions, which assists select members of Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid program).
